I know this will probably get moved(it is semi Dolphin related), but it looks like Arturo Freeman is now officially a Packer.
So now for the people who thought he might come back, he is officially gone.Moving to fill a void in the secondary that has remained open most of the off-season, the Green Bay Packers signed free-agent safety Arturo Freeman, a former Miami Dolphins starter who played under new defensive coordinator Jim Bates.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Monday night that Freeman's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said the 6-foot-1, 210-pound safety had signed a one-year deal with the Packers. Rosenhaus did not answer his phone earlier in the day and was unavailable for comment.
Freeman, 28, made a free-agent visit with the Packers on Thursday and Friday and met with Bates, who installed him as the Dolphins' starter after taking over as interim head coach last year. In Freeman, Bates gets a player who can function in his defensive scheme immediately as well as help others learn it.
